How to Capture Videos on a PC Using Movavi Screen Capture Studio

Do you want to be able to record videos using your PC? That doesn’t just mean record videos from your screen, but rather also from other devices such as webcams, TV tuners, or perhaps even by digitizing VHS tapes or importing footage from AVCHD cameras.

With Movavi Screen Capture Studio you’ll have the flexibility to capture videos through all those means. More importantly it will make it a piece of cake for you to set it all up, and all you need to do is:

  • Capture videos from a PC screen

Launch the software and select ‘Record screen’ in the menu then use the mouse cursor to draw a capture frame over the area that you want to record. Check that the right icons are highlighted depending on the audio source that you want to record, and when you are ready press ‘REC’ to start recording. Hit ‘Stop’ when you are done, and then ‘Save as’ to save the video.

  • Capture videos via a webcam, TV tuner or VHS player

Make sure the device is connected to your PC and detected then launch Movavi Screen Capture Studio and select ‘Edit Video’ in the menu then ‘Record Video’ afterwards. Select the device you want to use under the ‘Video capture device’ list and click ‘Start Capture’ to begin. Press ‘Stop Capture’ when you are done and the video will be automatically saved.

  • Import videos from AVCHD cameras

Connect the camera to your PC and wait for it to be detected then launch the software and select ‘Edit Video’ then ‘Record Video’ again. Assuming the camera was detected the list of its recordings should appear to the left and you can select the ones you want to import then click ‘Add Files to the Editor’.

Rather than saving your videos immediately, be sure to use the full length and breadth of Movavi Screen Capture Studio’s features to edit and improve them first. If you want you could cut and join video segments, enhance the video quality, apply special effects and filters, include background music, or even insert your own captions.

In any case you should now be able to capture video directly on your PC in any way you see fit. It is up to you to decide which device you want to use to record the footage that you need, but Movavi Screen Capture Studio will certainly facilitate the process with ease.
